    The Shippen is lovely, it had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. The owners Andy & Pam were very friendly and helpful but also respected our privacy. They have made the cottage into a perfect little retreat, and of course the location deep in the north Cornish countryside is glorious!

    A beautiful cottage. A bit far away from Bude when you have very small children. Also, no carpetted areas in cottage - again not perfect for tiny ones. Would be brilliant for couples or families with older children.

    We had a lovely week at The Shippen, and Pam and Andy were hugely welcoming. From a fire made up ready to light, to the cream tea on arrival and the friendly advice and tips on the local area. The accomodation was lovely - well spaced out, good sized rooms and clean and tidy. Perfect really. Highly recommended, and the local area is simply beautiful.
